    dual tuner backfeed problems

    Fault is spelled F-A-U-L-T, and the jackass attitude was not mine, read the threads. And the solution was not mine, and certainly originated anywhere but here, and thanks for proving my original theory that this is just a know-it-all site, and finally, the inception was long before you and I...

    dual tuner backfeed problems

    Sorry, I have been away from the computer for a few days. Certain houses are not grounded properly ( Surprise! ). Lets see, what would be a good analogy... Oh. I know. You know how every once in awhile you run across someone who just thinks they know what they are talking about, but then your...

    Dirt And Worms...please Help

    This is kind of like a mechanic asking you to back the car up to the phone so he can listen to it Unless the Klingons have uncloaked and blasted it, the 129 satellite is still up there. If your receiver is not getting it, it is as the aforementioned wise men suggested: you may have something...

    dual tuner backfeed problems

    FYI - it turns out to be a ground related problem on certain houses. The fix is actually simple. The reason the diplexers won't work is that they are run through the ground block, while the direct backfeed line is not. Thanks to those of you who tried to help. Good luck to the rest of you...

    dual tuner backfeed problems

    Is there any remote chance we good get off the subject of stingers? We know the importance of good fittings, stinger length, dielectric flush to the collar, etc. etc. etc. . I was hoping someone had something original to contribute. These are completely random occurences with nothing in common...

    dual tuner backfeed problems

    I have seen stingers shorted out almost even with the collar and dielectric still bringing at least one satellite signal. There's the way things should be, and then there's the way things are. The problems we are having are not related to stingers... with the exception of checking diplexer...

    dual tuner backfeed problems

    We have recently begun experiencing random problems on the backfeed for dual tuners. TV2 will have a snowy screen regardless of modulator settings. This problem occurs in dual tuners of all types. Today it was a 322 model for me. Other guys have had the same problem on 625s. The only resolution...

    522 Program guide appearance

    Anyone seeing problems with the appearance of the program guide border on the right-hand side of the screen? The last two units I have installed have had a "warp" in the border of the guide on the right-hand side only. After selecting a channel the picture is fine. This has only started...

    DishPro plus installation

    What kind of receiver(s) do you have? How many do you have? What kind of lnbs do you have?(dual, twin,quad?) What is prompting the switch from legacy to dishpro? What kind of reflector do you have,i.e. dish 300, dish 500?

    Bit of myth buster about feeding 2 signals off 1 using DPP 44 and separator...

    No one around here uses old crap cable either. But a "home pre-wired with RG6" does not mean "old crap cable". I don't pay for the cable. If all you are gaining is 20 to 30 seconds by using existing cable, DPP twin, separators, and diplexers I can see why you would avoid them.

    Bit of myth buster about feeding 2 signals off 1 using DPP 44 and separator...

    We do not charge extra for seperators, and they definitely do not work on anything but dual tuners. We diplex the #2 TV feed eliminating the need for any new cable ( assuming the house is pre-wired with RG6. And yes, we use the hell out of them. They save loads of time.
